I have used this over 16 years. I initially reached out for a serum which would help shrink my pores and it worked wonderfully then. But as the years went by the serum seem to have lost its touch.

I continue using and repurchasing it because I have become accustomed to using it over the many years but I am not able to say that it is actually doing anything anymore. My pores have grown …

I never actually bought this product to try on my face but I have However tested out on my hands whenever they got dry while shopping in Macy's! LOL! I personally think this serum is way overpriced for what it's really worth! Which I think is basically a primer like product just full of silicones in it to give you just a fake sensorial feeling of silkyness that tricks you to thinking …Read more

This is a nice product but NOT worth the high price. I bought the 30ml size and after using it after cleansing once a day for nearly 2 months I have not noticed a difference in my skin in the areas I have been watching the most, e.i. my T zone. It smells nice but kinda smells like Earl Grey tea.

I have used Idealist since it was first introduced many years ago. An Estee Lauder rep at a department store gave my friend and I a sample to try, and as soon as I felt how silky it was on my skin, I was sold.

I have very enlarged pores from years of oily, acne-prone skin, and this is the only product I have found that truly softens and improves the texture of my skin. Not only does it …

It is a lovely serum that doubles as a primer too.

It has a silky-matte finish that has some oil controlling function too.

The formula is silicone-in-water emulsion and contains two silicone oils and a silicone elastomer. The silicone elastomer is the culprit when it comes to clogged pores for some due to that it is occlusive. It can unfortunately also trigger cystic acne …

I've been using ANR until the Estee Lauder counter introduced this for my enlarged pore.
Upon applying the serum there's usually some runny gel like excess on my face.
After finishing half a bottle, the pores on my face were seriously clogged, with visible white bumps, some up tp ~2mm diametre (yes that big!). No breakout, but you can see that the face is not smooth..like …

I love Estee Lauder products! I bought this after an Estee Lauder sales girl suggested it would help diminish the size of my pores, and even out my skin tone. This serum is so smooth and silky feeling! It has the consistency of a primer, but it doesn't just "sit" on the skin's surface. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy or heavy feeling. Idealist pore minimizer makes a great …Read more

I'm not a big make up wearer but when I do, this has always been my go-to m/u base. I wouldn't be able to use this daily even if I wanted to as the silicones in it (first 3 ingredients after 'water') would wreak havoc with my skin, and I should know as have tried using for a whole week and that didn't end so well! My mum recommended this to me initially and she has been …Read more
